“I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend your life with somebody you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.” – When Harry Met Sally // This quote seemed so perfect to describe this amazing Chicago Riverwalk Proposal I had the honor to capture.
There are certain moments in your life that only happen once. They will be memories that you will think of often and will hold onto with both hands. When your future husband gets down on one knee and asks you if you would do him the honor of being his wife, it’s most definitely one of the best moments of your life. In that split second, your entire life changes, you go from walking into the future as one to walking into your future as two. It is no surprise to me as a photographer that more and more I am asked to capture this moment for clients.
Ryan contacted me about a month ago asking if I was available the evening of May 27th for a surprise wedding proposal for his girlfriend, Amber. I was honored to capture this amazing Chicago riverwalk proposal for this amazing couple! Every proposal I photograph has been amazing, but I think Ambers reaction was priceless. Ryan threw her off by first giving her a gift, it was a small box with three receipts in it – from their first three dates. Amber told me that Ryan is always doing romantic things such as this, so when he then got down on his knee she was truly surprised. Her reaction went from absolute shock to pure happiness and I just love how she got down on her knees as well to hug him in excitement….in white pants….in downtown Chicago!!!
After I gave these two some moments alone to take in the moment we headed down to along the Chicago riverwalk to capture some gorgeous portraits of the just engaged couple. I cannot thank Ryan enough for letting me be a part of this amazing moment. Congratulations on a long life together Ryan & Amber!!! x0 – Lisa
